Century West was selected by the Port of Skagit to conduct a comprehensive update of the 1995 airport master plan for the large general aviation airport in Skagit County. The primary issues addressed in the master plan update involved planning for the reconfiguration of the airport’s second runway; planning for two new aircraft fueling facilities; hangar area improvements; airport financial planning; noise evaluations; and integrating extensive wetland-related development constraints into the master plan preferred development alternative. The airport planning work was done in cooperation with Port’s contracted consulting airport engineer.
During the master plan project, the Port requested additional technical assistance from the planning/engineering team involving several specialized projects assignments: Airport Security Plan; Aircraft Fuel Facility Feasibility Study; and development of a “Fly-Friendly” brochure for pilots. The relationship between Century West and the Port of Skagit continued after the master plan work was completed and included developing a site plan for their expanded corporate aircraft hangar area.
